So (to my shame) I only got around to seeing Stardust recently, and although I absolutely loved the movie (The Salma wasn’t as thrilled as I was, and I think that they could have used a better actress to play star-girl) and want to get my hands on the Neil Gaiman book, I was far more impressed with the soundtrack. The music is sweeping and etherial (which is exactly as it should be), and the main themes that the composer, Ilan Eshkeri, created for the characters are a wonderful blend of music. This is excellent music for working to, or even just relaxing to. The opening theme, Through the Wall, starts the whole thing off and you’re simply swept away on a tide of beautiful strings and horn instruments. I’d never heard of Ilan Eshkeri before, but I’m definitely going to be looking out for more music by this guy. I’d put him on par with the composing giants (Horner, Williams, Zimmer, and so on) in terms of composing brilliance, which is quite a high recommendation indeed. But then, maybe I’m just biased that way!
